What to expect
Experience the multicultural flavor of the West Village on this afternoon walking tour. Make your way to Bleecker Street on the west side of Manhattan’s famed Greenwich Village neighborhood to meet up with your guide, a passionate local foodie. Feel the energetic hum of the area, which is home to an eclectic mix of restaurants, cafés, shops, and music venues. Stop in at six renowned local eateries to sample their finest fare, including Hudson Bagels and Mauman’s Falafel — the city’s oldest falafel joint. Get a taste of New York’s Italian heritage with cheesy pizza, housemade salami at Faicco's Italian Specialties, and creamy cannoli at Pasticceria Bruno, which was a champion on Food Network Challenge: Sugar Adventures. Combined, the tastings make up a satisfying sampler lunch.  As you make your way from stop to stop, learn the bohemian history of this unique neighborhood that was once home to musicians including Bob Dylan, Lou Reed, and Jimi Hendrix, and Beat writers Allen Ginsberg and Jack Kerouac. Your guide will point out their former homes and hangouts, as well as the apartment of fictional chef Monica from Friends. After walking around 2.5 miles (4 km), say farewell to your group and your guide at La Guardia Place near the original departure point.

Delicious, educational, and entertaining
Jul 2021
Jonathan was a fantastic tour guide and the food we had was delicious and representative of the history of the area. Lots of food was included, I was feeling quite full by the end and there were multiple opportunities to buy your own food along the way if you wanted more. Jonathan was great at explaining the storied history of every location along our tour in a fun and entertaining way. Truly a great experience and fantastic way to learn about the Lower East Side on any visit to the area!

A delicious, entertaining, and educational way to experience the Village!
Jonathan did a great job of bringing the Village alive for us. The food, the past, and the present were all well-represented. Jonathan set the tone with his pre-tour texts — he was friendly, accommodating, paid attention to details (which resurfaced during the tour!), and funny. As a result, he recognized us, as we approached him at the meeting spot, and greeted us by name. Throughout the tour, he made a point of continuing to address each participant by name and had conversations on a personal level with all of us, including our teenagers. His detailed knowledge of the restaurants (their histories and specific details of the ingredients and food preparation) was impressive and added much to the experience. He also shared many historical facts about the neighborhood, placing poignant emphasis on the plight of restauranteurs during the pandemic. Jonathan was a superb host!

Amazing Food Tour!
Sep 2020
My wife and I had an amazing time on the West Village Food Tour. We're local but we got to try foods from places we've never been to before. It was a private tour with just the 2 of us, which was nice. We had our guide's full attention, and moved at our own pace. Pizza, thai and middle eastern foods were our favorite. We're not big dessert people. Take this tour! You will be happy you did.

Great for Out of Towners AND Locals
Feb 2020
I'm not from NY, but rarely do any "touristy" stuff in NYC when I come visit at least 2x/year especially since all of my friends there are locals, however, I'd highly encourage everyone to go on this tour. Adam was an awesome guide, the food was awesome, the bits of history that we received along the walk was super interesting.

The food was plentiful and diverse and you have an opportunity to buy drinks at a few of the places if you so desire!

Beside the food, Adam really made this trip special. He was personable, funny, and had good relationships with the restaurants (especially Bleecker street) that really puts the icing on the cake. You can tell that this company respects the restaurants they patronize which is a very important aspect to me.

Although most people in the group were older, I think those in their 20s and 30s would really enjoy this (My friend and I are 28-29 for reference!)

Hi Staci! This is such a well-written review. We're so grateful that you took the time to share with us. Our guides truly are masters of their cities and their excitement about sharing with you is contagious! We also appreciate you noting that alcohol is an option for our tours. It's a neat perk that makes Sidewalk Food Tours so different! Next time you're in the Big Apple, we think you would enjoy our Lower East Side Food Tour, our Food Truck Food Tours, our Pizza, Beer and History Tour, or our Mad Men Cocktails Experience!

Brilliant tour, a must do.
Dec 2019
Matt was a brilliant host around our tour and kept us engaged, informed and well fed during the 3 hours. The walking was easy paced and took us across famous landmarks and discovered some secrets and gems around the quiet back street of the West Village. Food was great and bigger portions than I expected. Also a good mix across food types, ethnicity and flavours. Thanks Matt, this was a fantastic start to our New York holiday.

Great variety of food. Portions were good sized, but I wasn't crazy full at then. Matt was amazing!! He was so knowledgeable about the Village. Good for event native New Yorkers. I will be doing this again for sure.

We had an absolutely wonderful time with Adam, and the food was amazing. You get a little bit of everything and we didn’t shy away from trying it all. So much fun. Will definitely be booking another one with him.

Wonderful private group tour experience
Nov 2019
We had a private group tour for about 30 international clients on Thursday, Nov 21. We worked with Josh to set it up and then Matt and Adam as our tour guides. Everything was incredibly easy, ran smooth, and Matt and Adam were wonderful guides. Highly recommend!

Great value!

My sister and I just did this tour today. Learned about the West Village and visited seven different spots - much more food than anticipated....also delicious and a great variety! Adam was a proud New Yorker and happy to show us his city! Highly recommend this tour- easily enough food for lunch. Might even cover dinner too.
